Most of the time when I see this problem in the field it is cause by a bent or broken fuser gate. The gate is behind the right side door and is shown in the picture. What happens is at the rear side there is a little tab that sticks out. You can see it in the picture at the far end. That little tab trips a photo sensor. If this bar gets bent or broken then that tab does not go in far enough to trip the sensor and the machine will show a jam all the time. Normally you can fix this by opening this "gate" with the little lever shown at the front end of the picture. Then twist the plastic by pushing the sensor tab at the far end in towards the sensor hole. What you are trying to do is get that sensor tab to go farther into the sensor hole so as to trip the sensor. Once it moves farther in just shut the right side door back and see if the jam is reset.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Check if you have any matter that is blocking the paper path, also try to clean the rollers that picks up paper. If you happened that copier is in a dusty enviroment, dust could deposit on rollers, and rollers when picking up paper will start slipping. Try to clean with alcohol.

The copier says rec paper jam slide left platen? what do i do ?


On the slide there is a handle. This releases the top reader port of the copier, move it to the left. Raise right side cover and remove the drum cartridge unit. You should see the jammed paper there, at the right lower access door, or in the fuser where the paper should come out. Just reverse the procedure to reset the jam. If the copier still indicates the jam then it must be in the fuser. You will have to have a technician remove the fuser assembly from the copier and take apart the unit to remove the jam. Hope this helps.

I have a paper jam on a CLC 1120 and there is no paper jam I've check the machine 10 times


You didn't state where the jam is indicated. If it's indicating a paper pickup jam there are levers toward the back of the cassette that could get hung up.If it's a fuser jam the outlet lever on the fuser unit.If it's indicated in the transfer drum area a bad transfer sheet can give a false jam indication sensing paper on the drum.
